Specialty Specs for Special Activities

Different strokes for different folks, they say. Based on your lifestyle and activities, you may be in need of some specialty eyewear. Here are a few ways we can help with the task at hand.

Computer Eyewear:
If you’re spending long hours at the computer, we can make customized eyewear that is specifically designed to enhance ergonomic working distances. These eyeglasses are equipped with special lenses for computer use or as progressive lenses to be used for both computer work and for reading. Or try our Chemistrie reader magnetic clip-on lenses, with power up to +2.50, which act as a magnifier for computer use. You must have the Chemistrie magnet implanted in your eyewear lenses to use this option.

3-D Eyewear:
Chemistrie lenses can be made into 3-D lenses that enhance your 3-D TV and theater viewing. Once the Chemistrie magnet is imbedded in your lenses, it’s as simple as snapping the clip onto your lenses.  We can also make you a separate complete pair of 3-D glasses.

Specific Task Eyewear:
Regardless of the task, we have a magnifying lens that facilitates the process. From beading and needlework to stamp collecting or fly-tying, our custom eyewear is designed to accommodate your special interests.

Sports Eyewear:
